Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
One page shows what is almost certainly the author's ink inscription about how she felt inspired by the Lord during her suffering and she wanted to write it down for history to know. This ink and cursive style matches the inscription from the author seen on the fly leaf.
Binding gently age worn, mostly light signs of handling and time but nothing offensive or severe, book remains overall attractive as an object.
Paper is gently toned, internally still clean, tight, sound internally.
Still attractive on the shelf. The book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present seem easy to overlook or forgive.
